KMSS Awarded Contract For Norwegian Majesty

Friday, February 22, 2002
Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems (KMSS) has been awarded the contract to upgrade the fire detection system on the M/V Norwegian Majesty. The cruise vessel is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line in Miami, a part of Star Cruises.

The contract includes 2500 Detectors, 1300 'smart buzzers' and the Autromaster 5000 Colour Graphic Workstation. The Autromaster 5000 offers a color graphic indication, monitoring and control system that has been approved by the maritime authorities, and classification societies, and will replace the traditional LED panel system.

In 2001 the US National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) strongly recommended that all cruise ships in the US should install local buzzers in all cabins. The problem that faced owners was that the only systems available required extensive additional cabling at a massive cost. KMSS solved this problem by powering the buzzer from the detector loop, therefore eliminating the need for extra cabling. The class approved 'smart buzzer' will give off a sound of approximately 80dB and automatically switch off after 90 seconds, pre-warning the passengers and allowing the Public Address system to be heard. Pål FlØtten, Vice President, Fire and Safety at KMSS commented 'the smart buzzer from KMSS is a unique product that we developed to meet a specific need in the market place. At KMSS we pride ourselves in being able to find the best way of solving a problem while considering both safety and cost'.
